Been out shooting on the streets lately..what took me by surprise were a few men and women like this man here...not begging for alms..but just sitting in one place. Accepting a random coin from passers-by, every now and then. They were in that same place, both times I visited. Some even with a bag next to them..as though they were in the middle of a long journey..or had all their worldly belongings packed into that little space. But mostly it seemed to me like they were enduring..enduring time and their fate and doing it with relative grace.
